Ski Holidays in Serre Chevalier

Serre Chevalier is located in the Southern French Alps and is a jewel of a ski area. Appreciated by many including the Editors of Where to Ski & Snowboard (who rate Serre Chevalier as one of their favourite places), the skiing in Serre Chevalier is a delight, a challenge and a pleasure.

Serre Chevalier is a group of 13 villages running from Briancon to Monetier and boasts a ski area with 80% of its slopes over 2000m. The ski area offers an exopansive area for skiers and snowboarders alike and there are plenty of tree lined slopes which help make the resort as stunning to look at as to ski in.

Recent Winter updates for Serre Chevalier

With the increasing popularity of Serre Chevalier as a ski area and the new routes in to Turin and Grenoble from last winter, there are further additions to our Winter 13/14 options in the ski resort of Serre Chevalier. Alongside our catered chalets - the Ridon - we also have a range of self catered chalets, apartments and hotels and all benefit from the access to the pre-eminent ski area of Serre Chevalier.

Ski Holidays in Serre Chevalier all benefit from airport transfers being included as standard from either Turin or Grenoble airports.

Winter 11/12 introduced the new naming convention of Serre Chevalier vallee - we hope they did not spend lots of money on the re-brand as we suspect that we will all still call it Serre Che but it will still be a great ski resort.
